Letter from Logan County clerk

Send a link to a friend

DonutsTo the editor:

Although preparations for a general election begin in June prior to the election, they conclude at the end of November, well after Election Day. It is an arduous process that requires the work of county clerk staff, election judges, volunteers and a myriad of others who partner with us to make significant contributions to the success of the election.

In Logan County we train over 225 election judges who serve a two-year commission. They learn about election law, operation of voting equipment and the many details necessary to document the election process. These judges unselfishly give substantial hours of their time. We thank them and are grateful for their service to the citizens of Logan County.

Besides conducting the elections for the 31,000 residents of Logan County, the employees of the Logan County clerk's office serve the public in a number of other ways. They handle the vital statistics reporting, issuance of marriage licenses, tax extension and redemption, accounts payable and receivable, provide county board support, and record all land transactions for the county. Their efficiency and dedication often goes unnoticed. I commend my staff for their commitment to their jobs and to the citizens they serve.

This year's voter turnout was unprecedented, and I hope the trend continues. The primary and consolidated elections coming up this spring are extremely important to our daily life and greatly impact how our tax dollars are spent locally.

Thank you again for all you have done to make Election Day a success. God bless you and God bless America!


Sally J. Litterly
Your Logan County clerk
